Fix Me A Snack

A blog created by a mom who got sick of feeding her kids crackers and ice cream

Yan Yan is a Japanese snack that my kids love. I grew up eating Handi Snacks. They will have fond memories of Yan Yan.

We don’t make it to the Asian grocery very often, so Yan Yans are a special treat. I like that they aren’t at our regular grocery store so that I don’t have to deflect requests/begging every time I take the kids to buy a carton of milk.

There are no nutritionally redeeming qualities here. In fact, the ingredient list is quite frightening. But, the packaging is genius. And I’m trying to chill out a bit and am allowing some pre-planned trash into our diet occasionally.

    Thanks for being honest about the ingredients!

    What it lacks in nutritional value, it makes up for in international cachet. You’re helping your kids become global gourmands!
